As you may have noticed by now, I’m something of a Sega CD fanatic. I got the Sega Genesis, CD, 32X, & Sega Nomad in one shot when I was 13 years old. Sega CD amazed me from the very beginning. I used to play Sewer Shark on Sega CD for hours and hours. Eventually the disc would start skipping and the game would freeze. I noticed that the AC adapter was really really hot so I always thought that was the cause of the problem. I would get a whole bunch of ice cubes in a bag and put it on top of the adapter and point all the fans at it that I could. Of course my tiny teenage mind hadn’t realized that it was the scratched up CD itself that ended my play time
Anyway, there is a purpose to my ranting. Long long long after I traded my Sega CD in for a Nintendo 64 (as in a 2 years ago) I heard of a little game called Snatcher for the Sega CD. I heard it was a crazy comic book style game produced by Hideo Kojima of Metal Gear Solid game. Genuinely I picked up a copy (and a factory sealed Genesis and Sega Cd to play it on) and I was totally blown away. For the first time I just got back into playing it and I gotta say, “WOW!” this game is tons of fun, well made, well written and pretty darn cool even by today’s standards. It would be cool to see a game like this on a next Gen system. I can only imagine what Kojima could come up with. I personally would LOVE a sequel to Snatcher on the PS3. Hideo DO YOU HEAR ME?!?! PLEASE make a sequel to SNATCHER!!!
